We had beds like that. Solid oak, gave much service. We gave them to my
daughter, who's 32 now. We had those beds since, umm, she was 3 or 4.
It's now the granddaughter's. Unfortunately, the Charles Webb web site
<http://www.charleswebbcidesigns.com does not show this bed anymore, but
you can sort of see the style there.
Basically, the "trundle bed" has legs that pivot in (see ASCII art ".")
and fold underneath. Simple wheels (o) then let you roll it underneath
the "real" bed.
====(.)================(.)=== / \
The legs were joined on the short side of the bed by a beam, to make
folding easier and lend stability to the whole thing. The rails of the
bed had notches were mattress support was by means of slats parallel to
the short side of the bed. Put perf board over it and a mattress and off
If you would want me to, I could go over to my daughter's and make some
photos. I'm no good at drawing.
